It’s been a long and complicated process involving thousands of would-be singers, a not so Europe panel and a songwriting camp. But finally the time has come for Germany to select its entry for Eurovision 2018.

Before the German public and international jury make their decision tonight (from 20:15 CET), the Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of music unprofessionals – couldn’t help but give their views on the six hopefuls.

Due to the time constraints (the songs were only released two days ago y’all) we’ll be doing a mini-jury, just as in the same vein as Albania, Spain, Italy, Denmark and Serbia.

For this edition our jury comprises members from Germany as well as Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Hungary, New Zealand, Spain and the United Kingdom. Read on to see who they think should be flying the German flag in Lisbon this year.

Aline

1. voXXclub – “I mog di so”

This is the party track which Eurovision 2018 needs. It’s not the best song I’ve ever heard but it definitely stands out from the other ones in Unser Song für Lissabon in a good way. The song is really catchy and will create a great atmosphere in the arena. Sunstroke Project and Ilinca & Alex Florea proved that “troll” entries can do really well in Eurovision, so who knows, this may tread in their footsteps. I imagine a really catchy dance routine on stage so everyone in the audience can dance along with voXXclub.

2. Ryk – “You And I”
3. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”
4. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
5. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”
6. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”

Antranig

1. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”

In a national final with four or five good songs, Germany have a lot to work with. They should expect to be out of the Eurovision basement this year and truthfully, most if not all of these songs will do that for them. But the one they should send to Eurovision is Natia Todua. I love voXXclub and I’m compelled by Michael and Ivy but Natia’s song is so much fun. Lyrically enthralling and taking me to a new dimenson, Natia has an amazing song that will go a long way at Eurovision. She just needs the staging to go along with it. If Mariette wins Melfest, 2018 could be the year of the dreadlocks.

2. voXXclub – “I mog di so”
3. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”
4. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”
5. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
6. Ryk – “You And I”

Barnabas

1. voXXclub – “I mog di so”

We’ve got some well brewed Oktoberfest realness here, folks! This is the most unique entry in this selection, being fun, catchy and very danceable! The Bavarian dialect gives the whole thing a special flavor, so if something then THIS would elevate Germany out of the bottom region of the scoreboard! Sehr Gut, Deutschland!

2. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
3. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”
4. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”
5. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
6. Ryk – “You And I”

Cinan

1. Ryk – “You And I”

Wow! This is the only song of the selection that I liked after listening for a couple of seconds. It’s such a very gentle song. And I think Ryk will be able to cope with the live performance tonight. I wish him success!

2. voXXclub – “I mog di so”
3. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
4. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”
5. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”
6. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”

Edd

1. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”

What a captivating voice and incredible song. The music is an excellent crescendo, has an uplifting brass instrumentation, interesting lyrics and is simply pure class. My one worry is that his over-pronounced English accent and OTT stage presence makes him come across a bit weird; almost like a Mumford & Sons parody. If he can tone this down and tie his hair up, I would be shocked if this masterpiece doesn’t go top 5 in Lisbon.

2. voXXclub – “I mog di so”
3. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”
4. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
5. Ryk – “You And I”
6. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”

Florian

1. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”

Ivy Quainoo is of course the first winner of The Voice of Germany. While that doesn’t justify winning the selection, it does support the fact that her voice is outstanding in this competition. The song is not the best of her catalogue, but she can make this her own when it comes to the live performance.

2. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
3. Ryk – “You And I”
4. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”
5. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
6. voXXclub – “I mog di so”

Jonathan

1. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”

This is my clear stand out of the German selection. Touchingly beautiful, the lyrics feel both personal to Michael yet able to connect with everyone across Europe. This is the only song of the 2018 national final season that has made me feel anything emotionally and given me goosebumps. The added orchestration in the final chorus provides the song with the climax it needs but doesn’t overdo it so as to overpower Michael’s vocals. With suitably atmospheric staging, this could provide an amazingly special moment in Lisbon.

2. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
3. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”
4. Ryk – “You And I”
5. voXXclub – “I mog di so”
6. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”

Jordi

1. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”

Sweet-sounding harmonies and touching lyrics characterises what I feel a very special gem. Michael’s offering is truly emotive and beautiful. From his voice to his ability to make you feel, words are felt as he sings. And such connection is truly rewarding. However, it is true that this composition could go under the description of the “anti-fast-food” type of music, expected to fill this year’s contest. But that disposes of one very important element: emotion. This song speaks, touch hearts and makes you feel – and that’s very valuable.

2. Ryk – “You And I”
3. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
4. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
5. voXXclub – “I mog di so”
6. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”

Josh

1. Ryk – “You And I”

Quiet in its simplicity and fragility, “You and I” delivers a moment. On first listen, it took a second to find the rhythm, but that changed once the orchestra chimed in and, like ASMR, gave me tingles from head to toe. The power and rawness of Ryk’s voice is absolutely astounding – as if Eugent Bushpepa and Anthony Callea’s voices somehow had a baby. Accompanied with quiet yet intriguing staging, this is a surefire way to get Germany back to the top of that scoreboard.

2. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”
3. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”
4. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
5. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
6. voXXclub – “I mog di so”

Luis

1. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”

While the family/mother theme is slightly creaky, Michael’s entry stands out musically like no other in this selection. In a field of decent songs with good singers behind them, “You Let Me Walk Alone” brings that extra touch of quality and emotion. Michael takes you on a drive and makes you feel a part of his loving home. It’s both lovely and just a tad cringy, but the beauty of the music helps pass by the lyrics.

2. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
3. Ryk – “You And I”
4. voXXclub – “I mog di so”
5. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
6. Ivy Quainoo – “House On Fire”

Natalie

1. voXXclub – “I mog di so”

I hoped for a better selection from Germany this year. At the end of the day this is the only song that really stuck out to me. I know it’s not supposed to be taken seriously at all, and I would cringe seeing it on stage at Lisbon, but it’s so catchy and happy and original. And even more importantly, it’s very hard to dislike a song that has such a theme of carefreeness and self-expression. We can chant “I MOG DI SO” and not care about what anyone thinks! And I’m always overjoyed to see the Germans enjoy themselves.

2. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
3. Michael Schulte – “You Let Me Walk Alone”
4. Ivy Quainoo – “House On Fire”
5. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”
6. Ryk – “You And I”

Robyn

1. Ryk – “You And I”

In a way, I think voXXclub might be a better pick for Eurovision, but my heart is drawn to Ryk’s “You and I”. The song creates an intimate setting — Ryk’s fragile yet powerful voice accompanied by basic piano and a thoughtful orchestral accompaniment. The only thing that’s needed is for this song to work as a live performance. If it can harness the power of the studio version, it will be a force to be reckoned with.

2. voXXclub – “I mog di so”
3. Natia Todua – “My Own Way”
4. Ivy Quianoo – “House On Fire”
5. Xavier Darcy – “Jonah”

I mean, Ivy’s song is totally a Melfest material, but she is arguably better than most, if not all, songs submitted there thus far. Ryk is simply magical as well!

I like Natia, but I guess she was nervous. Also the chorus of her song doesn’t work at all.

I have mixed feelings about Voxxclub. At the same time that I think they’re uplifiting, they remind me of a group of frat boys. I guess this gets better when you had a few beers already. 😛

Jonah is a man’s name, right? I mean, Xavier could be singing in a ‘role’, not biographically, although singers usually tend to.

Michael Schulte has the most touching song, Ryk has the most beautiful voice, VoXXclub has the fun factor (though, I’d expect something more special from them) but overall this selection bores me. Nothing excites me here. I had high hopes from that songwriting camp but… It is what it is.
Only Voxxclub can help Germany to stand out among all the possible slow, non-fast food songs. But we’ll see…

Colin

Absolutely it’s Michael for me, but all six songs are better than generic Perfect Life and arguably better than Storms, so it’s likely that Germany might do better than last years. Michael could run for top 5 spot from me, while Ryk could achieve top 10. Voxxclub are really funny, and we need a bit of that too. Ivy and Natia have solid entries, but nothing what wasn’t heard before. Xavier has a nice song too.

My opinion (as a non-German): 1. Jonah – my absolute winner. I’m really surprised it appears so low in ranks. The song is catchy, yet no cheesy, Xavier’s voice is just great (he seems very charismatic) and I like the tempo. You really should choose it, guys! 2. You and I – the only problem with this song is that I’m not sure if it fits for Eurovision. The song itself is stunning (I really had goosebumps listening to it), very artistic and ‘tasty’, I love Ryk’s voice. But it’s also difficult. That’s why it’s my number 2. 3. You… Read more »

Michael Schulte’s “You Let Me Walk Alone” is a blatant recycling of a couple of Ed Sherran songs, nothing else, not original at all but good idea. I think the producers want Ivy Quianoo’s “House On Fire” to represent Germany this year, so watch the running order for this one. In terms of songwriting, vocals and drama Ryk’s “You And I” is the best studio wise. If he can do it live this could be the easy winner. Conchita 2 perhaps? Could be very good in Lisbon.

It’ll all be fine if Sweden sends Samir & Viktor xD Okay, Felix is actually my 2nd place right now and since I know that S&V don’t have any chances, I’m rooting for him. If you seperate both Acts (Michael & Felix) from one another enough, there won’t be a Problem. Let Michael peform 10th and Felix can be 25th or something.

Samir & Viktor would be too cool.
In the Michael/Felix scenario, I hope it’ll be room for both in the Top 10 but one of them might stand out more. We’ll see with their live performances I guess.
Nice to Germany climbing with the bookies 😀

Hahah. I would rather you voting for our lovely duo tho (Spain). Then we have a deal haha
Anyway, I can tell you with either Michael or Ryk (need to see them live tho) I might vote for Germany like the old days with Lena and Roman 😀
Atm I only like Italy and Czech Republic so Germany is in a good position 😀

Czech Republic and Italy make my top 2 actually. ^^ Every vote is welcome. But promise me you won’t vote for us if we send one of the women, we don’t deserve it then…

In what’s developing into a selection of serious, theme-ridden song contest, (and there’s nothing wrong with that) we need some light hearted sing-a-long fun
This is unashamedly Voxxclub territory
This would be a breath of fresh air on the Lisbon stage
Please Germany pick this and see your country on the left side of the leader board
Danke

If we should believe the Odds Germany should send Michael Schulte. He is topping the national final odds and he moved Germany from place 20 till 9! That is really impressive so choose wisely Germany!!

Eurovision needs VoXXclub so much. And Germany needs VoXXclub so much.
But that international jury is weird, those people probably never heard of ESC.
Why did Germany needed to have international jury this year? Why?
If Germany will not send VoXXclub I will hate so much all those weird leftist globalists that think sending traditional music is ultra-nationalism.
Germany, send VoXXclub, or burn in hell now.

I don’t think liking schlager music or not has much to do with being more left or right on the political scale… It’s just something you like or not. Since I had to listen to schlagers at every party I attented since I was very young, I grew to absolutely hate this type of music. But that has nothing to do with my view on politics lol. Most young people I know just think schlagers are lame (unless they’re drunk enough to roll with it, and then it becomes fun I guess.) But what I don’t get: isn’t the stereotype… Read more »

Haha, danke.
Antatika may have a good point or two here. But I suppose it depends on the intentions behind the song.

There’s no clear favorite, it seems. I’d go with something original and send voXXclub–that’ll certainly stand out at the contest, unlike the rest.

Schulte is the clear favourite. He is why Germany’s odds are surging. voXXclub would send Germany to new lows.

@Catriona Colville – ”voXXclub would send Germany to new lows”

What new lows? Semifinals, or what?
Michael will be destroyed after rehearsals by the very people that are supporting him now. Like Gabbani was. Everybody will love Madame Monsieur till the end, sadly.
